Lloyd (Husband, Dad, Grandpa, Great-Grandpa, Brother, Uncle, Friend) was born on December 5, 1934, in Turtle Lake Township to Ernest and Lucy Pahlow. He grew up with his 3 sisters on a farm east of Clayton and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture at the University of Wisconsin – River Falls. He later taught farming to veterans in southwestern Wisconsin returning from the war. Lloyd eventually went to work as a master plumber, owning Barron Plumbing & Heating in Barron, WI, for many years, where he and his wife, Judith (Zemke), raised 6 children. He taught his children the love of travel, shared his joy of fishing in Canada and on Lake Michigan, and hunted deer, elk, and bear with his family and friends in Wisconsin, Colorado, Canada, and Alaska. He married JoAnn Bolton Gunderson on May 2, 1998, at the Little Brown Church in the Vale. They traveled the United States and the world together, wintering in Texas, and exploring Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe.
